Windows Movie Maker is a free video editing software installed on a PC using Microsoft Windows OS and it accepts WMV, ASF, MPG (MPEG-1), AVI (DV-AVI), WMA, WAV and MP3.
However , Windows Movie Maker cannot import the AVCHD files directly since most of the AVCHD camcorders support MTS/M2TS files. In order to import MTS/M2TS files from AVCHD camcorder to Windows Movie Maker to edit, format conversion is must.
Now I will show you how to transfer AVCHD MTS/M2TS files to Windows Movie Maker for editing by using the Video Converter.
Download and install the converter, then add files
Download the latest version of Video Converter then install it on your computer. Click 'Add video' button to load MTS/M2TS files.
Choose output format
Click the drop-down list of profile on the right of the panel to select the output format like WMA, WAV and MP3 ect.
Start to convert MTS/M2TS files
When you make sure all steps are positive you can click the 'start encode' button to transfer the MTS/M2TS files.
Get the alterative files
After finishing please click the 'folder' button on the top of the panel to get the alterative files then import the files into Windows Movie Maker so that you can edit the video .
